Experiment #1

The experiment is on-going. No one knows what the experiment is about or what the results will be. It is not the first experiment, nor will it be the last. It is labeled otherwise for convenience sake. Everyone is a participant in the experiment. This makes 93% of the participants nervous. At the mention of the word "experiment," most participants envision test tubes and flasks though no test tubes nor flasks will be used. However, not having test tubes or flasks does not preclude them from not being used at some future point, if deemed necessary. Even though it is understood that all experiments are valuable whether they fail or succeed, most all participants feel embarrassed by failed experiments.  This embarrassment should have no impact on the experiment, even though it does, especially when a successful experiment, to some participants, continues to be a failure.
